What do we do? Commercial kitchens use fryers, sometimes multiple fryers, to prepare food cooked in oil. Oil is used and then thrown out, our service allows the oil to be cleaned for reuse multiple times, providing great value for money for your customer.

This service also prolongs the life of the equipment by keeping it clean and taking a messy job away from the kitchen staff, who often don’t know how to do it thoroughly. With little or no downtime as it can be done while the oil is still hot! Our equipment makes light work of the task, and you are quickly on to your next customer. 

We provide all the equipment you need to conduct this service and give you full training on how to do it effectively.

You become the restaurant's favourite supplier as it removes a costly, environment-impacting hassle. Saves them time and money and improves the quality of their food.

Plan your day around your customers making various stops along the way. We have many well-known high street brands using our services such as McDonald's, Greggs, KFC, and Greene King. Providing you customers from day one and giving you an income to build on.

 With our industry marketing, Filta branded vans, and your local knowledge the possibilities are endless.

With other services you can offer and a direct route to your customer you can manage either a single or multi-van business.


For £20,000 + VAT you will receive full training on all equipment servicing and running your business, ongoing support, bespoke equipment as well as preferential vehicle deals. 

The patented Filta MFU (Microfiltration unit) is worth over £15k on its own without all the other support, training, and marketing services we provide so it’s a great value-for-money franchise with no hidden costs.
